Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, was in his characteristic unconventional elements on Thursday when he hit some streets of the state capital Ado Ekiti with goodies for the masses as part of activities marking the celebration of his 56th birthday.

With market women and passers-by shouting Oshoko... Oshoko...as they trooped out to celebrate with him, Mr. Fayose asked his well wishers to line up in an orderly manner as he sliced and shared the cake amongst them with a little cash for Coke to drive it down.

Reacting to the unusual development, Governor Fayose said it is only right for him to give back to the same people that voted him into office.  He said: “It is a show of love to my people, we can’t sit in the government house and enjoy the comfort of the office without remembering them, I got a lot of gifts on my birthday, cakes, yam tubers, cows, rice and so on, how many can I eat? How many clothes can I wear at a time?

“It is just normal, just good for me to go back to the street and give it back to the people that put me in the government house, this is my style, this is me naturally, just that this time around it is more elaborate, moving from one junction to the other to ensure about 500 persons per junction get something small on my birthday.

“The more people you can touch, the better for your life today and tomorrow, these are the set of people that will never walk into the government house asking for contract, asking for help, they will not even be allowed to get in unless the governor leave the comfort of his office to come and meet with them wherever they are and that is exactly what I am doing.

“These are the people that employed us into the office, they should not be abandoned for one minute, we must stay with them continuously at every opportunity.”
